This unusual hotel is luxurious in feel and nestled near Frenchman’s Cove. Rock stars from around the globe have visited this area, and used the hotel’s onsite recording studio. Geejam focuses on relaxation, restoration and reinvention, and rooms and public spaces inspire all three. Twenty-four rooms and suites are available, as well as a private home. Throughout the resort are hidden speakers, and rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
Guests receive a cell phone upon check in to use during their stay, with Wi-Fi available across the resort. Bushbar is the resort’s onsite restaurant, with Jamaica, Asian-influenced and international cuisine.
Families are encouraged to stay in the resort’s private home, Sandwood. The three-bedroom villa features a private pool, sundeck, home theater, dining area and three bedrooms. The resort is located on a private beach and bay, and is just 10 minutes from Port Antonio.

It's the perfect place to get away from it all while getting away from it all. Definitely medicine for the soul. Always capitivated by the natural beauty of this perfectly hidden gem. Staff unobtrusive and helpful. The personalized greeting and mini tour of the studio with Steve enhances the experience. And if you are lucky, you get to hear Steve play the guitar and sing!
Will be back!
I have heard of Geejam and promised myself a visit to its hallowed grounds. The great reviews I had heard heralded a memorable visit and I was not disappointed in the least. We were greeted upon arrival by Dionne with a smile so welcoming that the visit started in fine style. Dionne checked in daily just to make sure the stay was without blemish. She is an absolute gem.
Gavel at the Bushbar went out of his way to ensure our needs were met and even commandeered a landscaping person to cut me down a fresh coconut so I could have my drink of choice. And he assured one was ready each time I came!
Chef Wallace came and introduced himself and explained each dish offering with a passion so that one knew immediately that he had a complete grasp of his craft. His food each time was delicious and tastefully displayed - a true asset to the property.
Rooms were spacious and kept beautifully by their excellent housekeeping team.
Overall a wonderful experience - cut short by my need to return to work. Definitely a must-again visit again heaven.
